Unconscionable Conduct – A Case Study in Charity Scams
This infographic is a picture that paints 1000 words. I encourage all prospective donors to go into the murky world of big charity fundraising with eyes wide open.
How To Choose a Legitimate & Honorable Charity
Before committing your hard-earned cash to a charitable organization, it is imperative that you do some basic due diligence to ensure that most of your funds, actually end up as direct aid. Unfortunately, there are many unscrupulous scammers who prey on well-intentioned donors, to line their own pockets.
If you do not have the time to do the due diligence, then you can fall back on our research. Rexxfield’s founder, Michael Roberts, is a licensed private investigator. Since 2004 he has been keeping tabs on some of the more popular mainstream charities, and has been disappointed by exorbitant administration fees, that route billions of dollars into the pockets of “solicitors”, which are in many cases nothing more than commission based telesales people. Unfortunately, the sales people use a variety of logical fallacies to appeal to your emotions and redirect the proceeds of your good intentions into their own pockets, and the ‘charity’ founders.
